Devotion time is crucial to your growth in faith.  Here are some resources for yours this week:

Read:

1 Corinthians 1:18-31

Isaiah 11:1-9

Do:

  • Step out of line: This week, everytime you find yourself reacting to a piece of gossip or a news story, pause and reflect on what the upside down logic of God’s kingdom challenge yourself to respond with wisdom.
